HUH???  What rules?
And what do you call MSAA?  Do not confuse API like behaviour with
applications Bob. 

"...The new accessibility model for Windows, UI Automation, is designed to
provide a single reliable source of UI information to assistive technology
products and automated test scripts."

We know you don't use MS products (sheesh do we know), so this likely will
not affect you.  But for developers of Windows based applications, it sounds
like a "new and improved" method of accessing UI information... Sounds
vaguely like DOM type behaviour to me (but I ain't no expert...)
